Projects / TorrentFlux


TorrentFlux is a feature rich Torrent client. Users can manage Torrent downloads through a Web interface from anywhere. Torrents can be uploaded via a URL or file upload, and can be started, stopped, and deleted with a click. You are also able to view the download progress of all Torrents, server drive space, and Torrent file meta information before and during download. It has built-in user management and security as well as private messaging between users. Each user is able to select their own theme and view the upload history. For administrators there is a detailed user administration and searchable logs. Various languages are supported.

            Excellent work. I have been working on a PHP-GTK GUI (ala TorrenSpy) but hadn't considered a web GUI (I know, I's PHP man how could the web not be my first thought!) but you have done a bang up job.

            I have had a problem with the myProfile page and skins. Getting some raw HTML to the screen and it doesn't look like the whole page loads but that is minor. I'll send a diff if I find a problem.

            Let me know if you are looking for a developer to help out or if you would just like help in adding a feature.

            Thanks again.
